Default Night and Day

Sorry it's a holiday shot again,

... not one but 2, 1 during the day, 1 at night.

I did use a small tripod with the night shot, and I didn't stay at that spot waiting for the day to end.

Just some exposure adjustments, noise reduction on the sky and a gradient transparency.

What do you think.

I like it and I'm glad you posted it was two shots. I would've been scratching my head wondering about it.

Very interesting effect - looks almost otherworldly. There was an artist (Chesley Bonestell) who some years ago did a series of magnificent paintings of imagined landscapes of other planets where there was no atmosphere - this is very reminiscent of those, with bright, contrasty surfaces, starkly juxtaposed against a dark starry sky.
If life brings you lemons, you can make lemonade.

Very interesting effect - this must have taken much time and attention to succeed so well!

A very creative idea with a most interesting result! Reminds me of the cover to Led Zeppelins "Houses of the Holy" album.
